Darkwings told me she recieved, so i thought I could go ahead an dpost a picture of what i made for her. I tried to pack it carefully but she said it still got slightly mashed in the mail. She had alot of kanzashi items on her wist so i made her this:

22  Ahhh! The hairdresser destoryed my hair! time for Hats (with link to tute!) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by CoanTeen on: September 05, 2010 07:30:06 PM
Well yesterday I went to the salon, and I told the woman I wanted a short, Velma Kelly bob. I've had this hair cut before and LOVED it. At the time my hair was a shaggy mess as i was letting my mohawk grow out. well the dirty little uh... bunt cake she was messed up my hair so bad i went home and cried. I look like a little boy with a reverse mullet. Soooo I did the only think I could think of... make some hats. And while i did I made a Tute for all of you who may suffer the same problem. (DO NOT got to a TGF or REGIS Salon, it was the master stylist/manager that jacked up my hair!)

So the whole tutorial with pictures and measurement is on my blog here: http://plaid-boots.livejournal.com/7877.html
Cuze yeah its was ALOT of pictures. Try it out!

The hat on the left is obviously a store bought hat, it was just a comparison.

What do you think? Dosen't really cover my hair enough for my tastes. Anyone go any other tute for better sewn hats to cover this awful do of mine.

23  Patched Kitty Hoodie for PurringCat in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by CoanTeen on: September 04, 2010 09:43:41 PM
This is the hoodie I made from PurringCat for the Amazing hoodie swap. the hoodie I thrift-ed from the local Goodwill, and then created a patch using tshirt scraps, a pillow case and a whole lot of time! Each pieces of the cat is cut out and then sewn piece by piece. It may be hard to see but the details such as toes, and the feathers in the wings are stitched in. I then painted it on the ears, the eye, and face, the new and tail to give it some depth with a shimmery silver, and decked it off with a houndstooth bow and skull button. I also added kitty easy to the top of the hood! It look great on her too which is awesome! All in All it took me probably five or more hours from start to finish (excluding planning and what not) It was my first time trying this sort of technique.


What do you think? ^^

May Shai'hulud Clear the sands before you.

24  I AM The Mid-Season Upgrade! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by CoanTeen on: August 28, 2010 02:12:43 AM

DSCF5734 by WitchWhoWalksWithoutFeet, on Flickr

I re-con'ed this shirt out of one of my male roommates unwanted plain black t-shirts. I cut it down to a much more flattering fit, and then stenciled the words "I Am the mid-season upgrade." Across the chest. It's a really... REALLLY. really nerdy reference that probably no one would get, but it's been my new saying around the house lately

I joined in a roleplaying gaming with two of my other roommates, it's a sort of Mecha Wars cross over RP, and i play Kensuke aida from Evangelion. Anyways the point is I joined the game right at the tail end. We only have a few months to go before it's over,  so as the new character joining "mid-season" with an "upgraded" Mecha right before things start to get really serious... I'm the Mid-season upgrade. Its a common trope in Giant Robot stories.

ok I guess if I have to explain it, I'ts less funny lol. Obviously I took the picture in the mirror LOL

25  Aquarion and gorillaz Shrinky Necklaces! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by CoanTeen on: August 28, 2010 12:58:58 AM
I started playing with Shrinky dinks for the first time since I was a kid today. I had planned to make these into Pins, but when they shrank smaller than i had anticipated I decied to make necklaces instead.

I traced the art for this from the inside of the second Aquarion DVD box. I even made the chain myself too from Chainmail links. It is Silvia and Apollo being all adorable. <3

26  My get up for Texas Industrial Fest!! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by CoanTeen on: August 17, 2010 10:59:06 AM
So I was asked to be a Go Go dancer at this years Texas Industrial fest last week, and i had to come up with a really amazing out fit in a really short amound of time! This isen't my usual type os designing, but i had such a blast! I made pretty much everything save for the bra, corset and socks. LOL the hair falls where super fun too, I wanted to make them bigger but my own hair is so short i had a hard time keeping these on as it where! I hope to improve this outfit alot be the next time i wear it, but even as it is, I love it!

I love the red satin tails. I made them out of a old stained satin bedsheet I got from... jeeze I'm not even sure anymore. I put snaps inside the corset so they can be taken off or put on at any time!

27  Bed sheets, shower curtains, and tshirts!! oh my i've been Busy! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by CoanTeen on: August 17, 2010 10:41:52 AM
As always, I've been reconning up a storm! I wanted to share a few of them here! ^^

A sack dress modeled by FluffyBaka! The red material is reconned from some really nice high thread count bed sheets i got for 99cents. And the Day of the Dead trim and pockets i bartered for from a friend! Its look so cute on her even though it so not my style! ^^

This skirt, modeled by my darling friend Hacked Ed, is made from a cloth shower curtain i bought many years ago when i lived in the barraks. the purple is also from a second hand bedsheet! I made a few in this same style, their so flowy and pretty! <3

Don't make you bed, WEAR IT! Cute JimJam set made from second hand bed sheets. I love how them!
Modeled by FluffyBaka

I adore the way the hood came on on this one! <3

And just in case you feel the urge to have Kratos crawling on your clevage... LMPO

Happy Reconning! The possabilities are only as limited as your creativity!

30  Waist Purse from a Pullow case! (Tute link added!) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by CoanTeen on: July 29, 2010 03:53:00 PM
Sort of a prototype. A friend at work gave me the idea, she wanted a purse to wear on her belt when she went to flipside and burning ma. This is what I came up with. Made out of a pillow case I got at Savers for 0.99! This is just the most basic version yet. I can't decide on closures, but i think big buttons are winning out over tie closures. what do you think?

(Pippin plushi made by Fluffybakka)

detail stitching done in metallic sulky purple/green mix


A total fashion success?

Pippin think so!
